The latest update of Milestone System’s XProtect 2022 R2 video management software features new capabilities including managing and monitoring incidents with the click of one button, offering the Essential+ version of XProtect on AWS Marketplace starting on July 5, and improving licence plate recognition to include style recognition.
XProtect Incident Manager
The new XProtect Incident Manager enables users to capture any live feed with a single click. When the incident is over, users can stop the capture and start filling in incident details. Incident types are fully configurable, allowing users to define incident types and details for reporting. Configuration options include free text, drop-down lists, dates and time fields, and several other options. Previously recorded footage can also be added to an incident to strengthen the evidence.
Milestone XProtect Essential+ on AWS
With the new release of Milestone XProtect 2022 R2, the Essential+ version of XProtect will replace the previous version in AWS Marketplace. Users will now be able to have all XProtect 2022 R2 product variants on AWS for optimised storage and transmission. The 2022 R2 version will be added to the previous version in AWS Marketplace, beginning July 5.
Improved Licence Plate Recognition (LPR)
XProtect 2022 R2 features enhanced licence plate style recognition. Different countries have distinct licence plate types and formats for various types of vehicles. The updated LPR feature enables users to recognise, sort and bundle licence plate types by analysing motor vehicles more efficiently. Depending on the country’s plate style, users will be able to distinguish trucks from private cars, or even police cars, limousines, trucks and buses form each other. Similarly, some countries have separate plates for gas driven or electric cars that will now be readily identified.
